Prevention

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

We strive to assist your children with a lifetime of oral health wellness. This begins with child well check ups.

  • Growth and development (including tooth alignment)

  • Developmental dental milestones

  • Tooth health

  • Gum health

  • Lifestyle factors such as habits and diet

  • Oral cancer screening

  • Airway

Popular preventive services to stay healthy:

  • Prophylaxis (cleaning) to remove stains and buildup

  • Fluoride varnish application (remineralize and strengthen enamel)

  • Dental sealants to smooth deep tooth grooves
